She Skis

Wendy loves to ski. "I went skiing & brought my bestie," she captioned a snap from the slopes. Research has linked downhill skiing to a number of health benefits. In addition to promoting physical fitness, it may decrease risk of cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. Studies have also found that the more frequently a person skis, prevalence of known hypercholesterolemia, systemic hypertension, diabetes, the frequency of mental stress and the occurrence of memory deficits declines. 


She Is Grateful

Wendy doesn't take her life for granted. "It is a gift to work doing something I love; and specifically working on this show. It's a gift to be in and around this nature. It's a gift to be surrounded by so many talented actors, and such a hard working crew. It is a privilege to be a part of this killer storytelling. This is a gratitude post…please enjoy the view," she captioned a recent post.


She Drinks Wine

Wendy enjoys a glass of white wine on occasion. While red wine is slightly healthier than white, the lighter shade of vino generally has fewer calories than the darker shade. 


She Paddle Boards

Wendy enjoys paddleboarding in the ocean. "I may look peaceful on that paddle board (the Perpetua filter helps) but I'm actually terrified in the middle of the ocean & just working thru it," she confessed in a photo. The American Council on Exercise (ACE) agrees that paddle boarding is great for the core and also a great form of cardio. The water sport can burn an average of 385 calories for a 140 pound male and 436 for a female the same size, per a study conducted by Arizona State University.


She Walks Her Dog

Wendy walks her dog. One study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that walking at a brisk pace for about 30 minutes a day led to a reduced risk of heart disease, cancer, dementia and death, compared with walking a similar number of steps but at a slower pace.
